Feedback for v1.12.3

Confirmed. Tisseo got hit by the new microG location thing.
App crashes on crDroid with microG 0.2.28. Logs also show a lot of GmsMaps related entries prior to Tisseo’s exception. App does show up in microG’s location access section with a little map.

Vendor Name: Google
Device name: Pixel 4a
Device CodeName: sunfish
Version of /e/OS or Stock which existed previously e-1.11-r stable
Is the device Rooted / Not rooted: Not rooted

No issues detected. By accident I saw today that pictures from camera are stored under ‘Camera’ and not under ‘OpenCamera’. It is easy to resolce, just change it back in the camera settings.

New feature in App Lounge where you can set if apps from other stores should not be updated doesn’t work properly (anymore). With v1.11 I have downloaded it and it workthen, now not so good anymore…

teracube 2e, emerald, upgraded from v1.10, now cannot make and receive calls, everything else works.

It happens too when device is unplugged.

I thought I’d deactivate Gestures to see.
It took several hours, but the problem came back.

Thanks for this report issue logged there

New version: 1.12.3-s-20230615299639-stable-FP4

  • Vendor name: Fairphone
  • Device name: FP4
  • Device code name: FP4
  • Version of /e/OS or Stock which existed previously: 1.11 stable FP4
  • Device not rooted

Update resetted several settings like VPN and app installation (F-Droid) permissions. Some apps or services had high consumption of battery before update. After update, they still have (like mobile network).
Advanced privacy shows trackers for only one app any more. Before I updated, the list of app related trackers was very long. For example, my Browser was shown to have trackers but now ‘they are gone’ (not visible in Advanced Privacy)

New version: 1.12.3-q-20230620301517-star2lte (dev)

Vendor name: Samsung
Device name: Galaxy S9+
Device code name: star2lte (SM-G965F)
Version of /e/OS or Stock which existed previously: 1.11-q dev
Device not rooted

The update went smoothly, as nearly always, and no (new) major issue found since then.
Well, some issues by the way :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

  • a bit longer boot time, and even sometimes, I even get a white screen with a rotating progress for a few seconds before getting the normal “desktop”,
  • I had to set again twice the Camera target folder to get it back to my preferred one … a bit odd, but fixed now,
  • and probably more battery consumption, not all the time, but with some apps like Bromite and others, but not others, … not clear ; the phone gets hot in my hand after a few minutes, which I have never noticed till then ; unfortunately, the settings page that ranks the apps by descending battery consumption since last full charge does not give the answer of which is that hungry … in spite of the battery graph suddenly getting down with a strong slope.

On the good side … after a few days with broken GPS (just as most of the time since 1.2), it seems to work well again, at least last sunday and today all morning long … would it be that the massive location layer rework come with microG 0.2.28 have fixed this ? Hmmm … let’s wait for a few weeks before any premature optimism :wink: (but hey … :star_struck: :face_with_raised_eyebrow:)
Update: Confirmed GPS OK all morning long, on July, 2nd.

Mine is the emerald version. Until now the only issues i have is app lounge wont work with the exception of right after a restart. Not a big deal. Not being able to make calls makes the phone useless. I hope they fix it within a couple days or i just go back to a googled phone that actually works

I don’t have emerald, but some generic things come to mind …

Did the update enable airplane mode by default perhaps?

You could try Settings - Apps - See all … apps - Phone - Storage and cache - Clear cache.

You could try whether turning off the phone (no reboot, real shutdown, it makes a difference), waiting a few seconds, then turning it on again helps.

Depending on where you are and which mobile network provider you use, VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling settings could be enabled/disabled for testing.

You could try Settings - System - Reset options - Reset Wi-Fi, mobile & Bluetooth (will of course lose your known Wi-Fi networks and passwords, but exists for reasons).

Stuff like this is not exclusive to any OS or device, but fingers crossed in any case.

Airplane mode is off. I have checked all the settings several times. Rebooted phone several times. A couple of factory resets. Verified Sim card to be good. Nothing has helped

If you went as far as this already … what about installing the prior /e/OS version which didn’t have the issue?

I would, but I don’t know where to access the prior software version. If I knew where to download it, seems like it could be a simple fix - emerald - Install doc - Command line, which for emerald will give you the choice to install current or prior dev or stable releases, whichever you prefer (or whichever you are running now, if you want to stick with it).

Dev and stable are explained at, and visible in the complete /e/OS version string ([HOWTO] Give complete /e/OS version info easily for support, answers, comparison etc).

Where’s the right place to report location problems with one particular app on this new version?

Either here, or in case you want to get the developers involved directly - over at

Is the device Rooted / Not rooted : Not rooted

Never had any problem with an OTA upgrade before so I confidently launched this one.

It didn’t encounter any error during the process but ever since I have an Android System notification saying it is finalizing the installation (it’s been over 48 hours). I read on the feedback post of a previous version that it could take long (although it didn’t take as long for the person as it’s been for me now) and that the device would eventually restart on its own and that it would be gone. My phone did restart on its own a few times but the notification is still here and nothing else happened.

Some of my parameters have been reset. I had to regive permission to some apps to use battery and work in background. Even though I did that, I have two apps that don’t work as they should:

  • Paseo (steps tracker) : works only if the app is launched even if the screen is locked or it’s not the active app on the screen;
  • Signal : works only if the app is launched AND it is the active app on the screen, otherwise I have absolutely no notification of messages and calls.

Also, I use KISS launcher and one of my widget disappeared. I mean, the space it uses is here and if I touch it it opens the app, but it’s blank. Removing and re-adding the widget didn’t change a thing.

Several reboots didn’t solve anything.

I will try retrograding to 1.11 and reupdating afterwards, see if it solves the problem.

The update went flawlessly and without problems. Battery drain seems to be solved. There are some minor issues:

App Lounge hangs a while after pressing Updates.
Advanced Privacy shows “Hide IP” enabled after reboot but it isnt working.
Location positioning in maps is much worse than before.

When I use a commercial VPN instead of Advanced Privacy there seems to be more batterydrain than in 1.10 and before. Especially the mail app and accountmanger are high in battery usage without even being used.

Update went well on my Fairphone 4. The app ABRP ( crashes all the time. Before the update, it worked well and without issues.

thank you for the suggestions, i opened up a ticket on gitlab, #7086. there must be something interfering with the phone function because all my other data functions correctly. i’m leaning towards setting up a sip instead of wiping my device and then i’ll wait for the next update, maybe things will shake themselves out.

My Lenovo TB-X306FA is running Stock Android 10 with an Android dynamic partition (‘super partition’). The installation of the /e/ GSI can therefore be done according to the /e/ documentation
